1. Summary

Abstract for the general public

The shared care teleoncology model has been operating in cooperation with Townsville Cancer Care since 2007 however, the efficacy of the model has never been evaluated. This study aims to identify the benefits and challenges of the model and explore ways this model of care can be improved, through semistructured interviewing of GPs and patients.
